In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and its impact on law enforcement and other first responders, the National Police Foundation, in collaboration with the National Alliance for Public Safety GIS and Esri, has developed a real-time situational awareness tool for law enforcement agencies. The tool, featuring a real-time dashboard, provides critical insights for executives, commanders, and others to better assess and monitor the impact of COVID-19, including officer exposures, diagnoses, workforce impacts, and PPE needs and projections.
The interactive tool, developed with technical support from the National Alliance for Public Safety GIS Foundation and Esri, allows agencies to provide confidential, real-time updates that are instantly incorporated into the national dashboard and map.
Additionally, this effort was mentioned by Vacaville Police Department Chief John Carli on March 25, 2020 on Fox News National.
